Dear Jan:

Yes, that sounds like a fine idea! Sheathing the heater in a well-perforated section of PVC pipe would be very effective in eliminating any possibility of the heater burn for your seahorses. And if the guys at your LFS use PVC pipe with a large enough diameter so that the seahorses’ tails cannot easily wrap around it or get a good grasp on it, that would also discourage the seahorses from using it as a hitching post in the future and encourage them to perch near the bottom of the aquarium instead where they will be better protected from gas bubble disease.

That sounds like a good plan that you should follow up on, Jan. Good luck!

Happy Trails!
